EDIcue - Formatting question

Does anyone here use Edi Cue, and Edi Prompt?

I just bought the package, and I'm in the process of learning the software. And I stumbled into my first formatting problem:

For breath cues, or sound alike cues, do you generate a separate hold track, sound alike/breath track, or note it somewhere in ediprompt/edicue?

My gut says to create a hold track for breaths, and a hold track for sound a likes, and cue them regularly, mostly so things are laid out if I had to pass the session to someone else.

Figured it out (I think)

I believe the correct formatting is to make a second and third track, note one as a breath track, and one as a soundalike track, then use .dup tracks and hold tracks to hold the takes.
One thing holding me back was the color scheme I was going with, where the tracks were hard to decerning primary ADR from supplementary ADR, but after changing that it seems to be working better.

Hi kaiwolf26,

If you like to keep these separate in your cueing session then just create dup tracks for the sound alike and breath cues. EdiCue will merge these into the same character during load as if they all came from the same track. "Hold" tracks are used to place cues which you want EdiCue to ignore during load.

Hope that helps.

Regards,

Mark
